We went to Tonic for a friend's birthday party. I generally enjoy this place, and perhaps it was because we arrived earlier than usual (9ish), but I was taken aback by the rather rigid table service only policy. I don't generally appreciate a bar that deters standing and, therefore, mingling. Minor annoyances aside, I had a wonderful time catching up with friends I hadn't seen in a while, discovering unexpected connections, and creating fantasy hybrid names. "Strauzioli" was the obvious winner. Doesn't that sound like some delicious pastry just waiting to be invented? If you create it, I demand royalties.

  29. I love all the beautiful colors on this cardigan! Also, I think that's odd about the rigid table service only! Very strange that they would be so super strict about it!

    Oh, and I love the photos in the last post too! You look great!

    Houston is already so hot and humid, it's hard to look good once we step out of our houses. So here's to making spring colors look great!

  34. It's getting so warm but I love it. I love those jeans. You always seem to pull off color so well.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Those jeans fit you perfectly and lengthen your leg line even more than your long legs already do ~ a bit of jealously from this little shortie over here :)

    Seriously though, that color is perfection paired with the dark wash ~ lovely!

  44. I have a love hate relationship with Missoni. I think some times people look they got in a fist fight with a rainbow while wearing an overly priced knits.

    Then there is the cardigans that your wearing that makes me love Missoni. Love it. Love the coral top too.
